Dwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade had a few words for his haters in his New Year message on the last day of 2018. The 36-year-old NBA star, who will retire in 2019, wrote a lengthy message summarizing his highs and lows in 2018, including the birth of his first daughter, Kaavia James, via a surrogate.

"2019 i hope you're ready for @kaaviajames and her agent/bodyguard of a father because this is how we're coming into the new year "TOGETHER"," he wrote.

He added:

"2018 was one of my most challenging years yet and also one of my most fulfilling years. From losing my mentor Henry Thomas in January. To being traded back to Miami in February. To standing with the state of Florida and the kids of Parkland in February /March."

Wade concluded,

"The way 2018 started was awful for my family and i but it ended in my wife @gabunion and i bringing our miracle into this world... to the NEW YEAR and all that comes with it. We’re ready!!! #Ifyourenotwithusyoureagainstus #thereforeyoudonteexist #TheWades".

Did you catch the shade at the end?

Wade and his wife, Gabrielle Union, 46, have quite a few haters -- including Wade's other baby mama, Aja Metoyer, who dissed Gabby in an Instagram post last week.

Early Saturday, Metoyer threw a not-so-subtle jab at Union by posting an Instagram meme that showed an image of a healed c-section scar with the text, "Shout out to every woman who made the sacrifice. You are appreciated."

The implication is that barren women like Union aren't appreciated because they didn't make the "sacrifice" by laboring for hours to deliver their babies naturally or via c-section.

    Whew...she don't exist now. Bih should've known her child would pay the ultimate price for her pettiness. I predict BM will be dragging him to court in 2019.

  • http://www.legalizemelanin.com Legalize Melanin

    I love that baby so much. And I love a man that stands up for his family and his wife. Gabby, you are still extra and high key fake but kudos to you sis for scoring an amazing career, a wonderful husband, your daughter, and everything you wanted. Proud of you.

  • http://www.legalizemelanin.com Legalize Melanin

    The shade was so missing my eyes got burnt from the shine

  • KcoolMuziq
  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    That babys feet look HUGE ? Anywho, wondering if the surrogate didnt have a happy pregnancy ?

  • Sha

    Right, spitting image of him. I do see a little bit of gabby when she smiles.

  • Sha

    Come on now, you no that was SHADE, why would she put up a picture like that.

  • hi-liter

    Babies don’t smile very much at that age.

  • Purplelibra

    She does look like she's showing the slaves the way to freedom

  • Thingamajig

    “@gabunion and i bringing our miracle into this world...”<— I’m not tryna sound mean but it was the surrogate who brought your daughter into the world sir. Both y’all should be thanking and giving praise to the surrogate who carried Kaavia to full term and delivered her into this world. These folks are selfish!

  • Ang

    If he lets his relationship with his child suffer because of someone else, even the mother, that says something about him. He choose Aja. He was friends with her for a decade. He married petty Gabby. He’s not much better.

  • Chuck

    Stupid ass Aja’s son never received a shout out because he was conceived the wrong way! And, now the bitch is bitter. Wade never loved you.

  • Hazel

    Am I the only one who has a problem with the son of a multi millionaire getting a scholarship that could go to someone who actually needs it? He can still play on the team without taking scholarship dollars. Seems really selfish to me.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    This seems a little petty to me. Whatever happened to just ignoring ignorant comment people make about you? People don't do that any more? You dont have to respond to everything.

  • Logan Roberts

    Dwyane is so unattractive to me. He just looks like he sucks on d... lemons all day.

  • oshh16

    So true....like constantly saying I'm unbothered instead of being unbothered. I'm just here for the comments

  • Ang

    Well, look who he married and who he had a baby with. He clearly has somethings in common with the women he chose. He’s petty too.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I actually get a kick out of ignoring people when I know they're throwing shade my way, whether online or off. They're sitting there twiddling their thumbs, waiting to see how I'm gonna respond... and I just ignore them. ?

  • guest

    He is so UGLY inside and out!

  • pecancandy

    Lol you think they gon run up on Baby Kaavia

  • free

    you a whole hoe for treating your son differently cause YOU f*cked up. your son does not deserve to be hidden away or not given the same PUBLIC love and affection you give to your daughter and other children, even their cousin. your son is an innocent. and your b*tch *ss wife should be ashamed of herself as well.

  • okiseethisthatdumbshit

    yes lil Kaavia! power to the people!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Kaavia and the break baby are both Scorpios so yeah there will be conflict eventually.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Better yet keep your private life off twitter or any social media.

    There was a time when celebrities preferred to keep their personal lives to themselves.

  • Peace

    Yup .Bitter because his wife had his last child. A beautiful baby girl looking exactly like her Dad. She wasn't ready .Lol .

  • Peace

    This a beautiful pic of Wade and his only daughter. The hater aja in sicko mode she wasn't ready when the family announced the birth of his only daughter with his Wife!
    The Wade's are Black Love, Black Excellence Personified! Congrats D. Wade and Gabby on your Miracle Baby Girl.

  • xxxgracious

    Hmmp hmmp ??

  • pecancandy

    Well they got the right one, cuz this baby looks like she bout that life. Like she doesn’t mind catching a case if it’s for the right circumstance

  • Mmm…Okay

    1. Aja was shading her. She typed some long message explaining it but it we ALL know what it was.
    2. Remember until Gabby and D.Wade had that baby Aja had a one up on her. Now Gabby got the ring AND gave him his only daughter.
    3. She strikes me as a bitter baby momma, the don't have that b×tch around my son type and a hundred other stipulations that would cause them to not post Xavier. Just speculation and observation.

    P.S. In my young foolish days I was a bitter baby momma, they usually aren't this old but we recognize the games.

  • Y me?

    I don't see a problem with it because there are need based scholarships and merit based scholarships. A student from a less advantageous background will be eligible for need based financial assistance while the son of the multi millionaire will not. Based on my understanding, A sports merit award is going to the most "talented " athlete regardless of income

  • Y me?

    Come on now ? u know thats not how it works. The surrogate is a temporary proxy for the actual mother. For all intents and purposes kaavia is gabby's baby. Its a little bit petty to act like all future references to kaavias entry to the world shud reference the temporary surrogate when gabby is life long mother

  • Notatall

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Y me?

    Beloved why were u a bitter baby momma? ?

  • Tiff J

    She looks MEAN. Like she's already over all the F*&@ S(^% of this world. LOL

  • Li-Wright

    God bless them, they're still married ! :)

  • Li-Wright

    Hes going to spoil that baby rotten.

  • Hazel

    True, but those are still limited dollars that could go to someone else. Unless every student has all the aid they need, that money could be given to someone else.

  • Mmm…Okay

    Because he wasn't doing what I thought he should do when it came to our son. Once I let that go, decided his relationship with his son is his own and I can't control a grown man only then I was able to move on with my life.

  • Y me?

    So get rid of merit scholarships altogether?

  • Y me?

    Amen!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ha,ha,ha!!!

    You are crazy.

    Happy 2019!!!!

  • the guest

    you a whole hoe for treating your son differently cause YOU f*cked up.

    your son is an innocent.

    and your b*tch *ss wife should be ashamed of herself as well.

    ****

    SPEAK!!!!!

  • the guest

    Yes he is.

    And, Lord have mercy, his only daughter LOOKS exactly like him.

    May she be blessed with a better character than her parents.

    But they're already misguiding their daughter by devaluing her older brother.

  • the guest

    Conceived the wrong way?

    He was supposedly broken up with Gabby which explains why he procreated with his longtime friend and lover. Gabby was never his fiance and she wasn't his wife when Xavier was created. There is no rationalization for the wrongs of Dwade and Gabby.

  • dontgetblocked

    They need to take some time away from social media. Let that baby try to grow into her looks. She's struggling right now.

  • pecancandy

    Same to you

  • interestingconcept1

    Chile I guess I'm against yall..I dont get a good vibe from him and that attention seeking Gabby.

  • tintin

    I would do a dna on that little girl if i was gabby. I just cant believe the baby didn't get an ounce of her. Considering it was via surrogate i would just wanna make sure my dna is in there.

  • tintin

    Lord forgive u ????

  • Purplelibra

    Yes, please fatha forgive me, lol

  • Peace

    Lol. Yes! Too cute!

  • brooklyn23

    Them crusty lips. His breaf be looking like it stank

  • oshh16

    Indifference, yep.

  • EyeEmJai

    Newborns and infants go through a series of phases in appearances. Give it time. 'Gabby' will show up. My oldest came out looking like a Filipino man's child lol. I didn't see a soul of his father in him, and neither did he. Within a month, he looked just like me, or my family. Within six months, I noticed he has his father's features, but looks just like my father lol.

    The same thing occurred with Beyonce and Kay's daughter, Blue. She looked nothing like her father as a newborn but now she is a nice mix if them. ?

  • EyeEmJai

    This!!!!

  • EyeEmJai

    Possible, but I don't think Gabby's hands are clean though. Gabby's hands are UNSEEN to us, but we don't know what Gabby has done or said to and about this woman and the child...'bitterly'. No one can tell me Gabby was, or is, above being bitter when D Wade cheated and had a child with someone else yet knew she couldn't have children. Similarly, there were/are no winners in this situation. Gabby didn't one-up Aja by getting a ring and using a surrgate, and possibly IVF to select the gender, to have a baby. Different women but the SAME man. This SAME man has brought the WORSE, not he best, out of them. I am not excusing Aja's behavior if this is what she is doing, but I am fully aware every action has a REACTION. It may not be the reaction we want but it is one nonetheless. This could be her reaction to actions. The common denominator here is D Wade. He started all of this, so he needs to fix it. As far as posting Xavier, my speculation is Gabby has something to do with it, and not Aja. After all, his presence is a constant reminder in what she couldn't do, infidelity, and humiliation. A woman doesn't have to be a baby mama to be bitter. Behind the facade, I sense Gabby is still bitter...as well.

  • HeaVen Sent

    Why does that baby look like she here for ALL the tea ...

  • Joy King

    You are so wrong for that comment, but I couldn't stop myself from laughing.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Black love and black excellence? Gabrielle and Dewayne? They are far from it. Try watching Black Panther again...............

  • Parent

    Warms my heart to see men with their children especially daughters

  • Parent

    Like he got sugar in his tank right?

  • Parent

    Lmao you are keeping it all the way real and I am here for it

  • the guest

    Simply put, they had a surrogate baby for publicity and because spiteful Gabby wanted to eclipse her husband's youngest son. I do not understand why people celebrate this couple.

  • the guest

    I've never seen a baby look so old.

  • the guest

    Because it's true.

  • the guest

    Preach!!!!

  • tintin

    I hear you. Same situation with my son. He was all me when he was born but now he is all my husband, he is 7 now. However you and I never used a surrogate. I just think something can go awry with this whole surrogate thing.

  • indano

    Look like the little cutey is expressing a Right On power sign...lol

  • EBT Doll

    Awww da baby?

  • Chuck

    So true!

  • Chuck

    So, you don’t think that D. Wade & his jumpoff were screwing while he was with Gabby? Sorry to tell you, but his jumpoff will be nothing but a baby’s mama to D. Wade & the Wayans man.
